Storyline

Steve Ford (Bruce Willis) is a down but not out L.A based Private Investigator whose professional and personal worlds collide after his loving pet Buddy is stolen by a notorious gang. A series of crazy circumstances find him doing the gang's bidding, while being chased by two vengeful Samoan brothers, a loan shark's goons, and a few other shady characters. They say a dog is a man's best friend, and Steve shows how far a man will go to be reunited with him. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

Awful
4 October 2018 | by simonwallisSee all my reviews

You have to wonder where the Bruce of 12 monkeys,Unbreakable,sixth sense,sin city to name a few, has gone. This is truly awful,not sure if a vanity project or something just thrown together at the last minute. Can't think of a single reason anyone else should have to suffer this,I've done it for you. Wise cracking guy loses his dog to a drug dealer,has to get said drug dealers stolen drugs back to get dog back. Various other characters involved,one being Bruce's junior PI partner/trainee who is also the films annoying narrator. That's basically the plot,I like some of Willis's work,every now and then he plays a blinder,this isn't one of those times.
